Romansh (also spelled Rumantsch, Romansch or Romanche) is since 1938 one of the four official national languages of Switzerland, along with German, French and Italian. It is one of the Rhaeto-Romance languages, believed to have descended from the Vulgar Latin variety spoken by Roman era occupiers of the region, and, as such, somewhat resembles Italian, French and Spanish. It was standardised in 1982 by Zürich-based linguist Heinrich Schmid and was declared an 'official language' of the Confederation in 1996. The standardised language is called 'Rumantsch Grischun'.

The layout of the Rumantsch Grischun calendar cube was created by Walter Randelshofer.
